Join Hundred Watt Club in Southend on Sea for a vintage inspired, champagne popping evening of burlesque, comedy & vaudeville.
Let your hair down and enjoy a good old fashioned glittering line-up of showgirls, circus, cabaret and comedy, wrapped up with a feisty, tongue-in-cheek ribbon all in the decadent surroundings of The Arlington Ballroom, a genuine 1920s gem of a venue!
Presenting a devilish line-up including: acid tongued hostess 'The songbird of Trafalgar square' Lili La Scala, stunning international burlesque showgirl Ruby Deshabille, world record holding circus star Chi Chi Revolver, neo-vaudevillian & striptease chameleon Lena Mae Lenman and joyously ridiculous ukulele-wielding comedienne, Eva Von Schnippish!
Glamorous, vintage attire is encouraged (we love it when you dress up!) but not enforced; wear what you're comfy in.
*If you wish to RESERVE A TABLE then you must pre-book your tickets, and contact the Arlington Ballroom directly on 01702 711350 with your name/ticket reference number to confirm. All other seating will be unreserved on a first come basis*
Please note this show employs and embraces adult themes, strong language and partial nudity. Over 18s Only.
What the critics say :
"Old school mischief & timeless raunchiness collide at the Hundred Watt Club. Hats - and corsets - off to Lena Mae for an excellent night of entertainment" Sussex Express
"Harking back to the gin drenched halcyon days of a grimy Berlin nightclub in the 1930s, The Hundred Watt Club sparkles, fizzles, and shines brightly on a dark night" fringereview.co.uk
"Righteous, radical...an absolute riot!" mardisgrasmag.co.uk

Eva Von Schnippish
With her military trained reactions, über quick wit and razor sharp tongue she's ready for anything. Armed with her small but mighty ukulele she will entertain and delight with old 30's & 40's forgotten gems, twisted show tunes and re-hashed 90's rave hits. Who knows what she'll fire at you…get ready to take cover.
